The Art of Giving

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 

Brown paper packages, tied up in string…these are a few of my favorite things. Not long ago, I heard that it was my neighbor’s birthday.  This is a neighbor that I don’t really know well, however our kids are the same age and I’d like to get to know her better.  Well, I also happened to discover what her favorite candy bar was.  Later that day when I was out shopping, I bought her favorite candy bar - one of those super king sized bars that after you’ve finished eating it, you think…”what have I done?” and vow to never  eat another candy bar for the rest of your life.   At home, I carefully wrapped it up with pretty paper and a little bow and attached a simple handwritten card that read, “A little bird told me it was your Birthday. I hope you have a wonderful day!”  I had this little bird deliver the gift.  Later, she called me explaining that she didn’t have any plans for her birthday, so it made her day to sit down and indulge in her favorite treat.  (Which is O.K. since it is her birthday, right?) More

My Little Secret

Wednesday, September 22, 2010 

Posted by Crista Sellman-Jones, Co-Founder
Satin Pillowcases is the secretOver thirty years ago, my grandmother let me in on a little family secret- a beauty secret that had been passed through our family since the Golden Age of Hollywood. She gave me my first satin pillowcase that she had carefully made with her own hands and told me that “it would keep me from getting wrinkles when I was older, and help to grow my hair long and beautiful.” At the age of three, I really didn’t care about any beauty benefits that this bubble-gum pink, soft and silky pillowcase would bring me when I got older. I just loved how it felt on my face, and quickly began a life-long habit of “wiggling” the satin between my fingers to soothe me into falling asleep at night (which I am embarrassed to say that I still do!) Every year thereafter, the one Christmas gift I could count on receiving from Grandma was a satin pillowcase. Sometimes they were wild colors like peach and green, mauve and hot pink, and sometimes were embroidered with flowers or my name, but always they were made especially for me and each member of my family with much love as my grandmother’s Christmas gift to each of us. I still have many of the satin pillowcases that she has made me over the years, though they have been “wiggled” into near shreds on the ends, and have been laundered thousands of times, I just can’t seem to part with them!  More

Love is in the air!

Thursday, January 28, 2010 

Posted by Crista Sellman-Jones  Love.  While it may not be what makes the world go around, it is what makes the ride worthwhile.  Millions of people will celebrate their love for one another on February 14th, all in the name of St. Valentine.  For the benefit of those who may be wondering who St. Valentine is, and why we celebrate him in February, I decided to offer a brief synopsis of the Valentine’s legend.  For all its popularity, history doesn’t give us any guarantees as to the true origin of St. Valentine’s Day.  The holiday remains based on legend and shrouded in mystery, containing vestiges from both Christianity and ancient Roman tradition.   More


Men Caught In The Act!

....Of stealing Satin Serenity pillowcases that is!  Ladies, have you blissfully fallen asleep with your satin pillowcase under your head, peacefully dreaming of protecting your hair and skin, only to awake in the morning finding your pillow is gone and under the slumbering head of your man? You’re not alone!  For years we have read your emails and answered your phone calls with complaints that your man has taken over your Satin Serenity pillow, and you have succumbed to purchasing a new one to end the nighttime battle.  Since this has turned into a global problem that women of all walks of life are now facing, we at Satin Serenity decided to investigate further.   More


Looking Outside of the Tunnel

Thursday, July 30, 2009 

Posted by Lisa Damron, Co-Founder
Owning a business has been a lot more trying than I had originally imagined.  It has taken me almost five years to begin to learn how to start balancing my life.  I say begin because I still find myself occasionally getting back into the tunnel – experiencing what I call business tunnel vision.   Since the start-up of Satin Serenity almost 5 years ago, I often found myself completely immersed in it, which is pretty much what you have to do to get a business off of the ground.   However, the difficulty lies in trying to figure out how to do this without sacrificing yourself, your family, and your friends.  This past year, I began to realize that I was neglecting some of the things that fed my soul and made me feel alive.  One of these things was spending time in nature, as I am an avid lover of the great outdoors.    More


Sit it out, or Dance

Tuesday, July 14, 2009 

Posted by Crista Sellman-Jones, Co-Founder
My little brother is getting married next month to a wonderful girl that our entire family adores. He told me that the song he chose to dance with our Mom at the reception was “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack. At first I thought it was an odd choice for him, but then I thought about the words to this song, and realized that this is what all mothers would want to say to their children. More
